    9:00–10:30 am    The New Biology: Mind Over Genes
    Bruce H. Lipton, PhD

    Cell biologist and lecturer, is an internationally recognized leader in the “new” biology. His pioneering research on cloned stem cells presaged the revolutionary field of epigenetics, the new science of how environment and perception control genes. Bruce served on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and his later research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine revealed the nature of the biochemical pathways that bridge the mind-body duality.  He is the bestselling author of The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles also author of The Honeymoon Effect, and co-author with Steve Bhaerman of Spontaneous Evolution. In 2009, Bruce received the prestigious 2009 Goi Peace Award (Japan) in honor of his scientific contribution to world harmony.
    A renaissance in science is shattering old myths and creating a new philosophy of health and healing. Join pioneering stem cell biologist and bestselling author, Bruce H. Lipton, as he takes you on a journey from the microcosm of the cell to the macrocosm of the mind. Once thought to be the domain of genes, the control of health and behavior are now dynamically linked to the environment, and more importantly, our perception of the environment. This illustrated and animated presentation illuminates the molecular mechanisms by which conscious and developmental programming control behavior and regulate gene expression. The newly identified cellular mechanisms include master switches through which thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs create the conditions of our body and life experiences.

    Effective Trauma Treatment: A Review of the Latest Evidence and Emerging Modalities
    Christine Courtois, PhD, ABPP

    Recently retired from Private Practice in Washington DC, she continues to write, consult and provide training in trauma psychology and the treatment of trauma, particularly for adults experiencing the effects of childhood incest and other forms of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. She has worked with these issues for 30 years and has developed treatment approaches for complex post traumatic and dissociative conditions. Past President of Division 56 (Psychological Trauma) of the American Psychological Association and a Founding Associate Editor of the Division’s journal, Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, & Policy, she has recently served as Chair of the APA Clinical Practice Guidelines for PTSD in Adults (2017).  Co-author of The Treatment of Complex Trauma and co-editor of Treating Complex Trauma: Scientific Foundations and Therapeutic Models and Treating Complex Trauma in Children and Adolescents, all with Dr. Julian Ford, and co-edited Spiritually Oriented Psychotherapy for Trauma.  Her recent consumer book is entitled It’s Not You, It’s What Happened to You.
    No clinical area has undergone more rapid development or benefited more from new research than the field of psychological trauma. The veritable flood of information has made it virtually impossible for therapists to stay on top of all the current research and clinical writing, learn about newest findings and techniques, investigate controversies and debates, and sort out results that matter from those that don’t. This keynote is opportunity to examine the clinical implications of the latest evidence. It includes an overview of the recommendations of the Clinical Practice and Professional Practice Guidelines of various national and international organizations and discusses other issues in trauma treatment, including the role of clinical judgment, competence and client preference.
    Integrating Spirituality and Psychotherapy to  Help Clients Recover
    Mark Sanders, LCSW, CADC

    His most recent book is Slipping Through the Cracks: Intervention Strategies for Clients with Multiple Addictions and Disorders. He is a lecturer at the University of Chicago and conducts a private practice. Mark provides trainings nationwide to audiences of mental health clinicians and addiction counselors.
    Two-thirds of Americans surveyed say they would prefer to work with a therapist who has a spiritual foundation. This interactive, skill-building session focuses on strategies to integrate spirituality into addictions and mental health counseling. A partial list of topics includes: The Differences between Religion and Spirituality; Integrating Religion and Spirituality with Traditional Addictions and Mental Health Counseling Approaches; Ethics and Spirituality; Conducting a Spiritual Assessment; and Issues of Diversity in Spirituality. Special emphasis will be placed upon working with clients with addictions and mental illnesses.

    2:00-3:30 pm    CONCURRENT WORKSHOPS
    The Grand Convergence: The New Science of the Body-Mind-Spirit Trinity
    Bruce H. Lipton, PhD

    In the face of global crises in health, home and heart, advances in science are creating a genuine revolution in thought and understanding, one so radical that it can change the world. Driving this evolution are discoveries in quantum physics and cell biology that reveal the molecular mechanisms bridging the mind-body connection. Evolution of these mechanisms provides for human consciousness and contributes to our spiritual nature. Cell biologist and bestselling author, Bruce H. Lipton unveils a revolutionary vision from frontier science that reveals a grand convergence of the Body-Mind-Spirit trinity. An understanding of the mechanisms by which consciousness interfaces biology empowers us to evolve from passive victims to responsible co-creators of the world to come.

    Relational Healing for Relational Injury in the Treatment of Complex Trauma
    Christine Courtois, PhD, ABPP

    Individuals with histories of early, severe childhood abuse and neglect and those who suffer extreme and cumulative forms of interpersonal trauma experience a wide range of difficulties, now referred to as complex trauma. These difficulties often have their origins in disturbed and disrupted primary attachment relationships, abuse and neglect within these relationships, and the additive effects of multiple experiences of trauma. These, in turn, cause considerable psychological damage, both personally and interpersonally. A therapeutic relationship is a primary intervention and context for distress of this sort, offering a secure base from which to examine and rework attachment difficulties, process the trauma, learn essential life and relational skills, and increase the capacity necessary for constructive relationships; however, developing a therapeutic relationship with complex trauma patients offers numerous challenges. This presentation will identify relational issues that arise in the treatment of this population and strategies for their identification and management. Ethics within the therapy relationship, vicarious trauma and countertransference responses and post-traumatic growth in the therapist will be discussed.

    Slipping Through the Cracks: Intervention Strategies for Clients with Multiple Addictions and Disorders
    Mark Sanders, LCSW, CADC

    Many chemically dependent clients have multiple addictions and disorders, which, if unaddressed, lead to chronic recidivism. They include hidden psychiatric disorders, unresolved trauma, unresolved grief, and process addictions, including sex, relationships, romance, gambling, shopping, and religion. In this presentation, participants will leave with strategies that will help them effectively address multiple addictions and disorders common among chemically dependent clients.

    Yogic Science as Addiction Medicine: A SuperHealth Perspective    
    Mukta Kaur Khalsa, PhD

    She directed the first yoga-based specialized hospital for substance abuse and mental health, rated in the top 10 percent in the country by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, an arm of the American Medical Association. She was a special representative to the United Nations Office of Drug Control and Crime in Vienna, Austria, and is a trainer and teacher worldwide. Mukta studied with Yogi Bhajan for 30 years, and is the author of Meditations for Addictive Behavior.
    SuperHealth as an approach in addiction treatment is on the cutting edge of recovery protocols. Technology incorporates Kundalini Yoga, meditation, specific breathing, nutrition restoration with therapeutic juice formulas. At the forefront of yogic therapeutic technology, it is precise and proven effective. The system addresses root cause of dependency often found as spiritual disconnection. It can manifest in the use of alcohol, drugs, smoking, food issues, codependency, stress, depression, anxiety and IT gadgets. Participants gain ancient wisdom combining innovations of western medicine to move from recovery to self-discovery. This presentation is didactic and experiential.

    Treating the Spiritual Effects of Trauma: Why, When, and How    
    Christine Courtois, PhD, ABPP

    Many psychotherapists believe that dealing with spiritual and religious issues in psychotherapy is unwarranted at best, unethical at worse. This may be due to the lack of attention given to these issues in their training and to research findings that therapists as a group are less spiritual or involved in organized religious practice than their clients. Yet, what happens when a client brings up issues related to their religious upbringing, faith tradition, spirituality, and meaning-making in their treatment (as a general issue or after having experienced adversity and trauma)? Traditional therapists may be hard-pressed to meet their needs. This presentation is designed to open discussion of these issues as it relates to clients who have experienced trauma, the wide variety of ways that spiritual and religious concerns can emerge, and ways for therapists to address them.

    Addiction and Recovery: The Confluence of Genetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences, Community, and Spirituality.
    Lorie Dwinell, MSW

    More than 48 years of experience in the field of addiction and recovery. Co-Author of After the Tears: Helping Adult Children of Alcoholics Heal Their Childhood Trauma. As a former addiction specialist at both the University of Washington School of Social Work and Seattle University’s Alcohol Studies Program, she trained many of today’s esteemed leaders in the addictive disorders field. A therapist in full time private practice in Seattle from 1977 until 2014 and now residing in Santa Fe, she specializes in all aspects of addictive disorders, grief, depression, stressful life events, and transitions.
    Relatively new research posits addiction as a brain disease with a confluence of many contributory factors, several of the most important of which are the genetics for alcoholism and a dopamine deficiency in the pleasure or reward center of the brain, unmetabolized trauma associated with adverse childhood events, and a cultural surround, which promulgates quick fixes for complex problems. Addiction is a magnetic force field to which one cannot not respond. Even in not responding, family members are responding and are caught up in the magnetic force field and develop a mirror illness making recovery a sought after outcome for both the alcoholic\addict and the family. We will examine who is the potential patient: the alcoholic\addict or the family, and where is the locus of motivation for change: the alcoholic\addict, the family, the community, and how to enhance and capitalize on that motivation. There are many roads to success or failure in recovery, and we will examine avenues of change and their respective efficacy.

    Growing Through Grief: Spirituality and the True Self    
    Sandra Felt, LCSW, BCD

    Sandra is the author of Beyond the Good-Girl Jail: When You Dare to Live from Your True Self, a Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work, a Certified Trauma-Informed Practitioner and Trainer, and a former director of a child-abuse treatment research program. She draws on her own hard won life experiences as well as more than 30 years of private practice as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker treating courageous survivors of trauma and neglect.
    While most of us have been taught to avoid the pain of grief as much as possible, grief actually provides a wide-open door into the deeper healing realms of a person’s spirituality and true self. Rather than focus only on coping skills to minimize the effects of grief as quickly as possible, what if we invited clients to grow through the experience? What are the spiritual questions and doubts that’s commonly accompany a close death or loss? What are the gifts that help us know and reconnect with our true self? How can we utilize a grief experience to integrate body, mind, and spirit? Specific practical strategies to encourage clients to stay with and grow through a grief experience will be provided

    Purpose, Meaning and Hope:  Logo Therapy in the Treatment of Addictions
    Mark Sanders, LCSW, CADC

    Logo therapy was developed by the renowned psychiatrist Victor Frankl, who was a concentration camp survivor. Its purpose is to increase clients’ hope and to help them find a sense of purpose in their suffering. This interactive, skill-building workshop utilizes principles from logo therapy to help chemically dependent clients recover. Topics covered include: The 10 things that give life meaning and purpose; The use of logo therapy principles to increase hope in chemically dependent clients; Purpose as a protective factor against relapse; and The use of principles from logo therapy to help chemically dependent clients identify their life purpose in recovery.

    9:00-10:00 am   Spirituality, Neuroscience, and Narrative: Becoming Fully Human

    Joan Borysenko, PhD
    Honorary Co-Chair

    This distinguished pioneer in integrative medicine is a world-renowned expert in the mind-body connection. Her work has been foundational in an international health-care revolution that recognizes the role of meaning, and the spiritual dimensions of life, as an integral part of health and healing. Harvard Medical School trained cancer cell biologist, a licensed psychologist, and bestselling author of 15 books including New York Times bestselling Minding the Body, Mending the Mind, It’s Not the End of the World: Developing Resilience in Times of Change, and The Plant Plus Diet Solution: Personalized Nutrition for Life.
    Spirituality is our deepest sense of connection, presence, and belonging—an experience of becoming fully human. Characterized by positive emotions including awe, compassion, forgiveness, gratefulness, love, trust, joy and hope, spirituality is like a tuning fork that recruits the best self in others. Interpersonal neurobiology describes how the mind is both embodied in our brain and nervous system as well as embedded in our relationships. In this program we will explore and experience how time-honored methods of body-mind training, combined with the quintessentially human capacity to create meaning through narrative, cultivate relational intelligence, health and well-being.

    10:30-11:30 am    Living Rhythmically
    Andrea G. Barthwell, MD, DFASAM
    Honorary Co-Chair

    Andrea Grubb Barthwell, MD, DFASAM is an internationally renowned physician that has been a pioneer in the field of addiction medicine within the American Addiction Society of Medicine (ASAM) and a contributor to the field of alcoholism and addiction treatment. She is a past president of ASAM, was awarded Fellow status, and is certified by the American Board of Addiction Medicine (ABAM). Dr. Barthwell has been widely regarded by her peers as one of the “Best Doctors in America” in addiction medicine. Dr. Barthwell serves as Medical Advisor for Treatment Management Company.  She also serves as the Medical Director for Encounter Medical Group PC and is the Founder and CEO of the Two Dreams facilities.
    Every living organism has a natural rhythm. These rhythms are disrupted by illness, particularly drug and alcohol use. A drug can create false sleep. A drug can stimulate alertness. A drug can suppress appetite. Another can stimulate appetite. This presentation explores the science behind living rhythmically, strategies that promote and restore natural rhythms, and the role of sleep, nutrition, meditation, and exercise in the 21st century approach to healing oneself in recovery.

    11:30–12:30 pm    Mind-Brain-Gene:  Toward Psychotherapy Integration
    John Arden, PhD, ABPP

    Has spoken in 25 countries and all US States.  He was until recently Director of Training in Mental Health for Kaiser Permanente in the Northern California region. He oversaw training programs in 24 medical centers where over 130 postdoctoral residents and interns are trained each year. Dr. Arden is the author of 14 books on the areas of brain-based psychological therapies, anxiety, PTSD, aging process, dementia, and pathways to enhancing brain health.  His new book, Mind-Brain-Gene: Toward the Integration of Psychotherapy encompasses the fields of Psychoneuroimmunology, Epigenetics, Neuroscience, Nutritional Neuroscience, and Psychotherapy Research.
    This presentation synthesizes the already substantial literature on psychoneuroimmunology and epigenetics, combining it with the neuroscience of emotional, interpersonal, and cognitive dynamics, with psychotherapeutic approaches to offer an integrated vision of psychotherapy.  The integrative model promotes a sea change in how we conceptualize mental health problems and their solutions.  We can now understand how the immune system, diet, brain structure, and even gut bacteria effect mental health. Psychotherapists in the 21st Century will by necessity become more like healthcare workers to address and resolve adverse mind-body-brain interactions.

    2:00-3:30 pm    CONCURRENT WORKSHOPS
    Where Mind-Body Medicine Meets Mental Health: An Update on  the New Science of Wellbeing    
    Joan Borysenko, PhD

    The most important determinant of physical health is mental health. While we’ve known that for years, new findings in neuroscience, nutrition, immunology, and epigenetics on the one hand, coupled with a growing emphasis on somatic therapies and energy medicine on the other, have opened new doors to healing and wholeness.  In this research-based practical presentation, participants will learn how adverse childhood experiences set the stage for chronic illness and substance abuse later in life through epigenetic changes, neurochemistry and immune function. Dr. Borysenko will examine how approaches based in interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, meditation, somatic techniques, narrative medicine, and medical chi gong - an energy medicine technique - can help restore physical and mental balance.


     How Relational Trauma Affects Spirituality    
    Heather Senior Monroe, MSW, LCSW

    Psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker who specializes in treating trauma and its destructive effects on individuals and families. Heather has worked in the fields of teen treatment and prevention for more than 10 years. Prior to joining the Newport Academy team, Heather was the Director of Family Services at Partnership for Drug-Free Kids in New York City, before leaving to focus solely on trainings for families around effective prevention and workshops for adolescents in treatment centers.
    This talk will define what relational trauma is and how it is formed in childhood. It will explore how it manifests in adulthood and the ways in which it impedes the spiritual growth of the individual.

    Helping People with Autostress Disorders    
    John Arden, PhD, ABPP

    The workshop will examine how outcomes are enhanced by using brain-based therapy approaches with people who have been plagued by auto-stress disorders. Just as people with autoimmune disorders suffer from attacks on their bodies by their own immune system, people with anxiety suffer attacks by their stress system on their mind/brain/body. Their anxiety becomes an auto-stress disorder wherein their own stress system no longer protects them from danger, but alerts them to danger when there is none. Clients with anxiety disorders are confused by the symptoms, as well as by different therapists they encounter who ascribe to the various brand-name therapies. In this workshop you will learn to teach your clients how to turn off their stress system using the brain-based psychoeducational approach that is understandable, tangible, and depathologizing.  

    Owning Our Own Narrative: The Importance of Telling Our Stories and Being Witnessed
    Lorie Dwinell, MSW

    In the era of the “Me Too” and “Time’s Up” movements, the importance of telling our stories and being witnessed is currently both recognized and magnified. We are apparently at a cultural tipping point with regard to acceptable male/female sexual behavior but beyond the immediate focus, there is a larger issue emerging and that is the importance of being known, transparent, and witnessed. This was highlighted by the Kaiser Permanente study in which physicians who were not psychiatrists asked patients questions about secrets, which they had never disclosed to another person. The mere fact of being asked the question and being heard, allowing patients to talk about shameful secrets and hidden traumatic life events lead to an unexpected 35% drop in the utilization of medical services and the realization of how adverse childhood events eventuate in potential later life psychological and medical problems if they remain unmetabolized.

    4:00-5:30 pm    CONCURRENT WORKSHOPS
    Neuroscience for Non-Scientists: Clinicians as Advocates to Change the Trajectory of the Opioid Epidemic
    Andrea G. Barthwell, MD

    The U.S. is in the throes of an unrelenting opioid epidemic and the individuals suffering from Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) are meeting a tepid response from policy-makers and practitioners. We are witnessing overdose deaths from opioids, or opioids in combination at an unprecedented rate, The change in morbidity and mortality is occurring at a time when psychosocial and pharmacological therapies are being developed at an amazing pace and systems of care are responding with expansion and employing disruptive technologies to overcome barriers of remote access and an inadequate number of people in the workforce to respond to the growing need. Additionally, policies to limit the individuals who can employ medication therapy are changing, but not at a pace equal to the expansion of the epidemic. Dr. Barthwell will recommend strategies to expand access that can be employed by clinicians who are trying to save lives and provide access to individualized care. Her presentation will explore the critical role that practitioners have in helping an individual with OUD decide whether medication assisted treatment is necessary, or not. Dr. Barthwell will delve into the basis of neuroadaptation to OUD, and more.

    Epigenetics and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)    
    John Arden, PhD, ABPP,

    This workshop discusses the wide-ranging health and mental health ramifications of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) studies. The ACE studies highlight the interaction between early adversity and epigenetic affects expressed later in life that significantly impact mental health.  The rapidly evolving field of epigenetics reveals how the gene-environment interaction brings about the expression or suppression of the genes. Maternal neglect and growing up in poverty have been shown to suppress genes regulating the cortisol receptors on the hippocampus, making it more difficult to turn off the HPA axis later in life.  In the extreme, low cortisol receptors are associated with suicide.

    While we cannot literally disconnect from our heart (it is always part of us) nor can we really break it, we can lose our awareness of its sacredness, its power to love, its willingness to forgive, and its ability to heal. Drawing upon knowledge from ancient ages to modern neuroscience, this workshop focuses on the connection between the heart and the brain and how to reconnect to the heart’s wisdom to help ourselves and those we work with to answer the question “Who am I?”.

    Healing the Roots of Addiction: Beyond Duality and the      Disconnect from Self
    Sandra Felt, LCSW, BCD

    Trauma survivors simply cannot heal in the same relationship system in which they were traumatized. Duality (a particular pattern of judgmental thinking) and disconnect from the true self are key symptoms of early developmental trauma that often present as addiction, relational conflict, and/or a need to be in control. Teaching six essential self skills while also consciously relating from our own true self to the client’s true self creates the deeper safety necessary in therapy for clients to heal beyond duality and its constant power struggles. Addiction then loses its innate purpose, the need to be in control begins to melt away, and the client can once again live from the true self.

    7:00–9:00 pm  Evening Program

Trans-personal and cross-cultural, The Five Gifts are an integral part of many cultures and spiritual traditions. This program shows you how to integrate The Five Gifts into your practice.

    8:00–8:45 am Meditation: 4th Pillar of Health    
    (This session not offered for CE Credit)
    Sheri Laine, LAC, Dipl AC

    Within traditional oriental medicine, there are four essential avenues of treatment that offer a particular approach to bring one’s body to a healthy state of equilibrium. These are known as the 4 pillars of health. This meditation will explore the Qi Gong pillar/Qi vitalization pillar, the modern term for a host of traditional exercises focused on the breath. With a calm spirit and heart, health will persevere.

    9:00-10:00 am    We Were Never Designed for This: The Psychological Toxicity of Modern Day Life (and What You Can Do About It)
    Stephen Ilardi, PhD

    Has served on the faculties of the University of Colorado and (presently) the University of Kansas. The author of over 50 scholarly articles on mental illness, Dr. Ilardi is a nationally recognized expert on depression. His work has been honored by the American Psychological Association’s prestigious Blau Award for early career contributions to the field, and his research on the neuroscience of depression has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). He has also been invited to give two recent TEDx talks on his work, and is the author of The Depression Cure: The 6-Step Program to Beat Depression Without Drugs. Recently, he was selected from a pool of over 2,000 instructors at KU as the recipient of the school’s highest instructional honor, the HOPE Award for teaching excellence. He also maintains a clinical practice.
    Our ancestors lived for countless millennia in a world far different from the one we now inhabit, and our genes, bodies, brains, and minds remain largely calibrated to that ancient way of life. Simply put: We were never designed for the sedentary, indoor, socially isolated, sleep-deprived, fast-food-laden, frenzied 24/7/365 pace of modern American life. The result is an epidemic of mental illness that shows no signs of abating despite the fact that one in five Americans is now on psychiatric medication. But it is possible to reclaim several healing habits of the past—many of which have effects on neurochemistry—and weave them into the fabric of 21st-century life.

    10:30-11:30 am    A New Paradigm for Psychotherapy: Freedom and Fulfillment through Internal Control
    Fred Hanna, PhD

    Professor in the Department of Counseling at Adler University, Chicago, IL and also serves as a Faculty Associate at Johns Hopkins University. He has held positions on the editorial boards of six scholarly journals and has published a wide range of professional articles. His research interests have focused on developing the Precursors Model of Change. Fred has also developed and published many innovative clinical techniques aimed at positive change for aggressive adolescents, addicted clients, suicidal clients, victims of personal and cultural oppression, and criminal personalities. Author of the book, Therapy with Difficult Clients: Using the Precursors Model to Awaken Change.
    This program may provide a perspective that will expand how you view positive change and personal growth. The major theories of Western psychotherapy when compared to this paradigm are revealed to be surprisingly passive. Now that self-determination and the resurgence of the power of will have been validated by research, the respective improvements in therapy and self improvement are a natural result. For example, what if there was an “undo” function for the mind and emotions, and not just for a computer? Many powerful techniques are offered in this program based on ancient Buddhist and Yogic mental practices, that the presenter/professor has studied in-depth for over 40 years, including in Asia. Attendees will be asked to try specific techniques within themselves that directly change and even undo negative mental and emotional phenomena. Internal Control Therapy (ICT) is derived from Yoga, Buddhist, and Hindu psychologies, existentialism, and phenomenological methods. Some of the techniques are; Spatial Expansion, Memory Shaping, Object Orientation; the Pod Technique, and the Proactive Present.

    Lifestyle-Based Strategies for Healing Depression    
    Stephen Ilardi, PhD

    Despite a 300% increase in antidepressant use since the 1990s, the staggering toll of depressive illness keeps rising. As the research evidence keeps pouring in, a sad reality has come sharply into focus: medications alone do not deliver a complete and lasting recovery for the majority of depressed individuals who take them. Fortunately, modern neuroscience reveals that the way we live also has a profound impact on brain function, and myriad simple changes in lifestyle have shown a powerful ability to help heal depression. In this workshop, we will examine 7 lifestyle-based strategies that can be integrated into any depression treatment regimen.

    Taking that Step Beyond: Techniques for Spiritual Transcendence and Transformation
    Fred Hanna, PhD

    This is a completely unique program that will likely provide techniques that you have not previously encountered. It is both radical and sensible at once. You may be surprised. Now that mindfulness has taken the psychotherapy world by storm, perhaps it is time to go deeper, toward their true purpose of transformation and transcendence. In this program, mindfulness and meditation are redirected beyond stress reduction back to their true purpose 2500 years ago and more, by a presenter and published author that has been studying, practicing, compiling, and teaching powerful meditation techniques for well over 40 years. He will share little known, seldom taught, powerful tips for transcending in meditation. Sources are Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the Vijnanabhairava, and Chinese Chan practices. Many of these techniques were learned by the presenter while studying in Asia.

    Metaphors Be With You: Using Stories as a Gentle and Effective Way to Facilitate Change
    Bill O’Hanlon, MS, LMFT

    Stories can be a powerful change tool, respectful and non-impositional. This presentation will introduce you to the use of stories and other metaphorical methods in therapy. Even if you are not a “natural storyteller,” you will learn to design and deliver stories, healing rituals, and other metaphorical interventions, as well as raise your awareness of clients’ metaphors and their importance in the process of change. Why Are Stories So Effective in Therapy? Elements of Engaging, Change-Inducing Stories and Demonstration of storytelling for a change.


     3:30-5:00 pm    CONCURRENT WORKSHOPS
    Nutrition-Based Strategies for Healing Mental Illness    
    Stephen Ilardi, PhD

    Brain structure and function are both profoundly influenced by what we eat, and research from the emerging field of nutritional psychiatry reveals numerous ways in which the processed-food-laden American diet has contributed to the burgeoning epidemic of mental illness. It also highlights several specific nutrition-based interventions of proven usefulness in combating symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, addiction, insomnia, dementia, and other common forms of psychological distress. In this presentation, we will explore the neurocognitive effects of nutrients ranging from essential fatty acids to B-vitamins to trace minerals to soluble fiber, with a focus on specific ways in which nutritional strategies may be integrated into everyday clinical practice.

    Beyond the Invisible Fence: Three Methods to Reducing and Eliminating Anxiety, Phobia and Panic Problems
    Bill O’Hanlon, MS, LMFT

    Anxiety-related issues are some of the most common concerns brought to therapy. In this workshop, you will learn effective, humane, compassionate approaches to reducing or eliminating anxiety issues. The main effect of fear, anxiety, phobias and panic: Restriction of movement and activity; The invisible fence: How fear, anxiety and depression keep people confined to a small territory; The room of 1,000 demons: Walking through the limits of fear; Looking fear in the eyes: Facing fear and Liberating territory from fear: Pushing against the boundaries.

    Resolving Resistance: Advanced Skills and Techniques for Counseling Difficult Clients
    Fred Hanna, PhD

    Graduate schools do not typically teach courses that address how to help resistant, involuntary, and/or defiant clients to change. You have heard of the defense mechanisms of course, but this presentation makes use of the “offense mechanisms” of change. It is based on the nationally recognized and empirically validated Precursors of Change and the book in which they were described. This presenter/author has delivered over 400 trainings, workshops, and presentations across America. You will learn revolutionary, paradoxical, easily applied techniques that have remarkable change potential, such as admiring negatives, the freedom challenge, redirecting goals, keys to eliciting disclosure, powerful reframes, addiction validation, and more.
